Integration Tools for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) and System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) or System Center Essentials (SCE) 2010


Dell Server PRO (Performance and Resource Optimization) Management Pack with PRO-Tips integrates with System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 and SCOM 2007 or SCE 2010 to provide effective management of physical Dell PowerEdge servers that host virtual workloads. The Dell Server PRO Management Pack enables PRO-Tip recommendations and remedial actions based on hardware alerts generated by Dell servers that host Virtual Machines (VMs) in Microsoft Hyper-V environments. Recommendations include live migration of the VMs or placement of the host server in a restricted maintenance mode. Dell was one of the first vendors to release to market (RTM) a PRO-Pack that provides support for the Live Migration features of SCVMM R2 and also provides a default recovery action over-ride feature that allows IT Administrators to configure customized recovery actions specific to use in their own environment.
